Matthew Perry Beat Up Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Matthew Perry talks about his Canadian heritage and reveals he and a friend shamefully beat up Justin Trudeau when they were in 5th grade.

"My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau," he recalled. "We both beat him up. I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't so it was pure jealousy."

"I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up," he added "You know, I’m not bragging about this, this is terrible. I was a stupid kid, I didn’t want to beat him up. In fact, I think at one point I tried to turn it into love play."

Perry joked that the moment was probably what led to Trudeau becoming Prime Minister.

"I think it was rather instrumental in him going to such great heights and becoming the prime minister," he laughed. "I think he said, 'I'm gonna rise above this and I'm gonna become prime minister.'"

Perry also speaks about first botching Ted Kennedy's accent in 'The Kennedys: After Camelot', thanks in large part to his coach.
